Question about KitchenAid A-9 Electric Burr Grinder

1 Answer

Cannot get the grinding ring option to turn

I purchased a Vintage Kitchen Aid Coffee grinder and I cannot get the grinding ring, under the glass and rubber seal, to turn. I see there is a little screw behind. Do I need to unscrew this to change the grinding options from fine, medium or course?
Thanks for any help you can give me.

This is a set screw. You need to take this out.
You can access this to either clean the burr
grinding wheel. Maybe this needs changed.
If you google the Kitchenaid A-9 Burr grinder you can get instructions to download on this machine.

I need to know the exact placement of the gasket for the glass hopper----Manual states it should go on the glass but then it is difficult to screw the hopper on to the machine---It makes more sense to...


I had the same problem, as I had a vintage machine, missing the gasket. (Without the gasket, vibration of machine will cause jar to unscrew by itself.) Put the gasket on the glass, but slide it up on the threads so that it only contacts the machine body when jar is fully screwed in. Jar will indeed get (slightly) difficult to screw on as gasket contacts grinder adjustment ring, but that slight tension is normal and necessary in order for the gasket to achieve it's function.

How do I clean the bean grinder in a seaco royal profesionla machine?


These instructions come directly from the service manual. Notice the mention of a qualified technician. If you do this on your own be careful. If you don't follow the instructions correctly or you break something you've will have no one to blame but yourself.

-Clean the coffee beans container periodically; this operation should be accomplished by a qualified technician! Unplug the machine. Empty the coffee container and unloose the two fastening screws. Now, the container can be removed and cleaned.

-Carefully pull the adjustment lever upwards, previously writing the set grinding degree.

-Turn the adjustment ring counterclockwise, until the blue marks coincide.

-Now, it is possible to remove the grinding ring from the machine, slightly pulling it upwards.

-With the aid of a brush or a narrow vacuum hose, clean both the gear box and the grind ring support. Make sure the position of the grind ring does not shift. To reassemble the coffee grinder, carry out the reverse sequence, making sure the adjustment ring has not been shifted during cleaning. If that is the case, turn it until the blue mark coincide with one of the three notches. Assemble the grind ring support and make sure the blue marks coincide.

-Turn the adjustment ring clockwise, to make the red marks coincide.

-Fit the adjustment lever on the ring, until it coincides with the previously set grinding degree.

Kitchen aid burr grinder adjustments


You are correct, the grider positions are locked internaly so the grinder will not go too fine since this can damage the blades and also too fine need more power from motor and also can block it by rottating normaly. However you ir open the grider you can overcome the lock and udjust so the grinder can grind more fine coffee. In order to be always at the safe side just move gradualy step by step until you find the perfect grinding and adjust so that will be the minimum plus one mor move for furure adjustment if you need.
Just for reference the corect grinding is for 7 to 7.5 gr of coffee the running time of the coffee from your machine should be 25 sec for 25 cc of coffee aprox.
Good luck.

Parts and Grind Selection


The current Kitchenaid A9 burr grinder glass jar is interchangable with the original Hobart/Kitchenaid A9 glass jar; therefor, the gasket should also interchange - contact Kitchenaid customer service to order a gasket.

Setting the grind is accomplished by grasping the body of the ginder in one hand and the grind-selector ring (collar that the jar screws into) in the other. Hold the base tight and turn the selector ring clockwise for a finer grind, counterclockwise for coarser. Be careful not to completely unscrew the selector ring; if you are not sure how much adjustment is left, screw it all the way clockwise until it stops (finest grind); then, back it off, up to one full turn to make the grind coarser.

The selector ring has the words coarse, medium and fine cast into it; these are rough postition markers. There is a triangle cast into the body of the grinder, just above the brand name, that can be used to diral in a preferred level of grind. I use a medium-coarse grind for drip coffee makers; to do likewise, position the selector ring so that the triangle is pointing midway between the words coarse and medium.

Help....we poured some water into the bean grinder/container


Hi,

You have to take off the bean hopper, turn the ring on grinder anticlockwise to you see the claque. Take out the middle off the grinder and clean everything carefully.

After that you have to put it back again, when you have the middle off the grinder back you turn the ring clockwise to the end, after that you turn it anticlockwise 14 "tick".
